Rhymes, Rhythms, and BEYOND!
Over four years in development and tested with hundreds of students, Rhymes, Rhythms, and BEYOND! is a collection of speech pieces and raps for use in the elementary classroom. These 100% original rhythm poems, created by percussionist and masters-level Orff-certified elementary educator Jeff Henson, are guaranteed to engage your students. Each activity is comprised of both a teacher page and student resource visual that can be projected or printed from the Visual Resource CD or used as a student activity sheet. Engage students in composing, creative thinking, improvising, moving, using instruments and more, all while teaching/reinforcing music vocabulary and concepts and building reading fluency. The timeless themes are student-based, thus avoiding trendy topics. There are over 70 speech activities, unmatched in any other classroom resource, and enough to last your entire career! Once you begin using Rhymes, Rhythms and BEYOND, you will find that you will revisit many activities as you discover which ones are most popular with students.
